Today, Brother Bob will share some enjoyable sayings to help you remember the bible. Pictured above we see the miracle where Jesus used two small fishes and five loaves of bread to feed about five thousand people. To remember this story say first there was a bread problem, then there was a budget proposed, then there was a boy presented, and finally there was a bounty provided.
First, the bread problem occured at John 6:5 that says When Jesus then lifted up His eyes, and saw a great company come unto Him, He saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat? Then a budget was proposed by Philip who acted like the chairman of a finance committee or a Southern Baptist making an estimate when he replied at John 6:7 Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
Next a boy was presented by Andrew to Jesus with two small fishes and five loaves of bread. John 6:8 says One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto Him, There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes; but what are they among so many? And finally a bounty was provided by our Lord Jesus who used the five barley loaves and two small fishes to feed about five thousand people with fragments remaining.
The bounty provided is found at John 6:10 that says And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down. In number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, He distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down, and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. When they were filled, he said unto His disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing is lost. Therefore, they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
Friend reading this anywhere, remember when Jesus blesses us he gives us exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think. Jesus not only fed the five thousand, but provided extra food above what was needed filling twelve baskets with remaining fragments of food. I claim in Jesus name the promise of Ephesians 3:20 to anyone reading this that says Now unto Him (Jesus) that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
Also, note how humble and blessed the disciple Andrew was. We don't hear much about Andrew, but Andrew was responsible for blessing around 8000 people. Andrew was the disciple that led Peter to Jesus and later Peter saved 3000 people. And finally Andrew presented the little boy with two small fishes and five barley loaves that were used to bless around 5000 people. I pray in Jesus name, we can all be humble like Andrew, staying out of the limelight where only Jesus gets the glory as multitudes are blessed.
OK, next Brother Bob is going to give my friends some more enjoyable sayings to remember how Peter and John healed a certain lame man at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful pictured above. To remember this story say first there was a lameness, then there was a look, then there was a limp, and finally there was a leap OR say first there was a look, then there was a lift, then there was life in the ankles, and finally there was a leap of joy.
First we see a lameness occurring at Acts 3:2 that says And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple. Then we see a look at Acts 3:3 that says Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
Next, the lift, limp, and life in the ankles occurred at Acts 3:6-7 that says Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee; In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And He took him by the right hand, and lifted him up; and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
And finally the leap occurred at Acts 3:8 that says And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.
Alright, next Brother Bob is going to share an enjoyable way to remember Psalm 23 which will comfort all my friends everywhere. Notice that each verse of Psalm 23 pictured above has a comforting message. Say and memorize each verse of Psalm 23 with the corresponding comforting message listed below and in Jesus name I pray peace forevermore to you.
Say The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. WITH ME; He maketh me to lie down in green pastures BENEATH ME; He leadeth me beside the still waters BESIDE ME; He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me, thy rod and staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me BEFORE ME; in the presence of mine enemies; AROUND ME; Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; AFTER ME; (note that the goodness of God gives me what I do not deserve, while the mercy of God keeps me from getting what I do deserve). And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever; AHEAD OF ME.
OK, pictured above we see yet another blessed bible verse at 1 John 2:6. Listed below is another enjoyable way to remember 1 John 2:6. Notice also that each verse of 1 John 2:6 has a comforting message.Say and memorize each verse of 1 John 2:6 by saying He that saith; PROFESSION; He abideth in Him; POSITION; ought himself also so to walk; PRACTICE; even as He walked; PERFECTION.
Next, I want my friends everywhere to read what is written below about President John F. Kennedy pictured above. When John F. Kennedy rode along the streets of Dallas Texas, bystanders must have felt that he had it made. Young, educated, wealthy, with an attractive wife and family, a world figure, and President of the United States of America. But a rifle cracked and all that mattered was how things stood between JFK and God.
Friend, remember that whether someone is rich like JFK, poor, a beggar, a king, or a thief, the only thing that matters is how things stand between us and God. Why wait friends. Right now repent and turn from your sins to God and get saved by confessing Jesus as God, believing that Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Jesus said at 2 Corinthians 6:2 I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee; behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
Every day say I am crucified with Christ and covered by the blood of Jesus to get victory in every area of your lives. The other week I learned how to sleep peacefully each night with no bad dreams. Write this down by your beds (I am crucified with Christ and covered by the blood of Jesus and the blood of Jesus covers all my dreams and thoughts) and say this every night 5 minutes right before you sleep. The blood of Jesus will block the devil from giving you bad dreams and you will dream peacefully about Jesus and the bible. THIS WORKS. Proverbs 3:24 promises When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid; yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
One day as SD Gordon passed this woman's house, he said Auntie, do you live here all alone? No, she replied, just me and Jesus. SD Gordon drove a way down the road, took off his hat, knelt in his buggy, and prayed the following prayer; Lord help me to live like this woman that when people pass by my house they may be able to say SD Gordon lives there and Jesus.
For twenty five years Brother Bob has placed the name Jesus in bold black letters on the outside of his apartment door to let everyone know that Brother Bob lives there with Jesus. For twenty five years the name Jesus has protected Brother Bob and nothing has been stolen from my house for twenty five years. God's Word is true and Mark 16:17 says In Jesus name, you will cast out the devil who comes to steal, kill, and destroy. How encouraging to know that we can live safely behind the name of Jesus daily. Proverbs 18:10 is the truth and says The name of the Lord (Jesus) is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
I pray in Jesus name this little bible study blesses multitudes all over this earth.
